Reach Out: Body heART for Positive Body Image





Body heART is, in their own words, "dedicated to bringing awareness to positive body image. In today's society there is an unrealistic standard of beauty and we intend to shatter that illusion...We believe all of us are walking works of ART that are meant to be celebrated and valued."

Their photo campaign features un-retouched images of girls and women of all shapes and sizes. Find out how you can get involved in their photo campaign!

Also, every month, they feature a different woman (such as Dollhouse actress Miracle Laurie) at their website. Check out their videos at YouTube.
